Doesn't look bad. I'd go with the blue tape around the boom where the brackets fit. That should snug things up.

Along with about 92mm tailblades as discussed before.

I have this problem too , after hard 3d flights 3 rounds, 4th round the tail slips side .. whole heli spinning , came down hard, both mains n tail blade unhurt, frame cracked, my tail servo bls256 csse broken. A few reported tail slips issue. Mikado shud look into that.

They should create a tail where newbies also can adapt to it.. not users to adapt to its situAtion. Spent so much but ended up dissapointed. Will change frames and skids, will sell off..

Been a mikado fans for years, before owned one .. but once fly with such issue happens, doubt will continue to spend more.

With market full of good helis around why still choose mikado when u have to worry when the tails gonna slip in .

Am flying a 550sx

tyfast27,
Regarding the wag, it could be the picture but that tail shaft looks a little rough. Sure it's absolutely smooth?

Regarding the slippage, I've seen guys use tape. The blue stuff seems to work good.

Hate to tell you but expansion n contraction of metal with temp is gonna happen with all aluminum booms no matter the manufactor. Mikado slots the boom up front at the frame boom box the the tail is slotted on the plastic tail box. Going to the cf tail box not sure I don't have one but sounds not to be slotted ?? I would use my short experience in rc to pin the box to the boom with a small screw ?? Or add a shim to prevent it from spinning ?? The tape

Can't blame poor building on mikado. A rc Heli will only fly as well as u can build it

Dang Bob not much gets by you! I took it apart this evening and the shaft was extremely rough! I sanded it when I did the upgrade and I must not of gotten it clean???? It was smooth until all this happened and I did not have any wag with the upgrade, tail seemed pretty solid until the assembly would slide up the boom and the belt would start to slip of course. I think the tape will be my first effort to fix the Heli. I thought about pinning it to the boom but then I wouldn't be able to adjust it and that's probably going to be a must with the changes in temp around here. I have been flying align for about 3 yrs off and on now and this is my first logo Heli but I must say it may quickly become my favorite once I get it figured out. My first priority will be to upgrade to flybareless as I'm not digging setting up the flybar or the way it feels at this point. Plus the wind affects it more I think.

A Logo with a Flybar? I wonder if you could sell that as an interest item. They don't even make FB models anymore.

OIC for the reason for the 105mm now, it's not for the blow out but tail wag. A sticky or none smooth tail mechanism will do it. If you want to smoothen it out further, I can suggest this:

- put tail shaft on cordless drill
- use 2500 or 3000 grit sandpaper
- wet sand the tail shaft
- this will polish it
- than get some Dry Fluid (helidirect has it)
- a little goes a long way
- if you disconnect the ball from tail servon horn
- with everything else connected
- stand Heli vertical
- the wieght of control rod should drop it

Upgrading to FBL isn't a must and you would have the same problem if the tail section is not smooth. The GY611 is just perfectly fine and Is rock soild. It's just proper mechanics and geometry setup. Hence new Logo owners have a harder time setting up but once you get more experience, not too difficult. I still have a whole bunch of Mikado FB parts. Also, FBL will have a different flight characteristics and switching back and forth will have you thinking twice about your stick movements

Wind does affect the FB b/c of Transitional Lift. The FBL controllers will just dip the nose. So you can do the same, if you feel a gust of wind .. Just dip the nose ever so gently.

BTW
Didn't I suggest you a Logo half a year ago?

Yes Scott I almost traded you for a logo but I chickened out... I found this flight frame on eBay for a great deal! I actually did wet sand the shaft and it was super smooth, the tail was rock solid. For some reason some how the shaft got roughed up during my last flight, something got in there and scraped it I'm assuming. Thanks for the info though I will definitely do that.

Check your flange bearings in the tail case and make sure the tail box is squared. I usually CA glue the flange bearings on. Your brass pitch slider sleeve might be worn.
